    Abdullah immediately comes to mind for Trakehner. A Fine Romance has a GP offspring, I believe, for TBs.

    As Di Villagna?
    Jaguar Mail?

    I have no idea of your mare's pedigree or what she is like (conformation or personality). However, I have both a Special Memories filly and an Abdullah filly of the same age and out of the same dam. The dam was an old-fashioned, longer backed/shorter legged, heavier type mare (by Galoubet). Both fillies are an improvement in type; more modern and lighter boned. In my case the Abdullah is actually the more refined of the two, with a very typey head. Both have recently been started under-saddle, and have been free-jumped. The Special Memories baby is more of a hunter type mover and is a very nice jumper in the chute, but a flatter type jump. The Abdullah is NOT a hunter type mover and is a much rounder/scopier horse in the chute, but is a bit spookier/hotter than her sister. The Special Memories filly has a super laid-back personality and is just very, very easy and quiet.
    Again, not neccessarily reccomending either for your mare, but giving my input on two stallions that have been mentioned.

    I have to agree with Special Moments. Hilltop has Quite Easy, Utrillo Van De Heffinck, Jaguar Mail and Alligator Fontaine. I don't know your mare but these are some stallions you might want to check out. I think all at Hilltop are frozen semen with a LFG.

    Good luck with your breeding.

    Really like your mare! I had a nice Special Memories from my Dutch mare. I would say more hunter than jumper type, good mind, fun personality. Not hot, but would look at new things.

    And Special Memories is in the SSA, which ends pretty soon (on the 14th) and you get two doses of the very limited frozen that is left in the world - as many pregnancies as you can get out of those two doses.

    Has Special Memories produced International level jumpers?

    I like the Bonaparte AA suggestion, but also not sure if he fits the criteria in the OP?

    "International"? not sure... there is a mare, Esperanza, that was winning in the Mini Prix in 2011 - not sure what she is doing in the last 2 years. There is another "foal", Silver and Gold, that was in hunters, then went to the A/O ring and is apparently doing quite well, and there are others on SM FB page that appears to be doing something of significance (in terms of height) in the jumper rings... http://www.facebook.com/pages/Specia...x/296200378143 Maybe Omare will come on as she probably knows more about the "kids" and what they are doing...

    What about the Holstein approved Trakehner stallion Hirtentanz?

    I don't think he fits the OPs criteria weight wise or Internationally producing (he's too young!)

    I don't have much to impart other than I love your mare.. her expression is hilarious - is it raining there? Looks like she is really listening to that rider though - that inner ear.. I'd love to see what other people have suggested for her!

    Horalas.
    He does not produce heavy, and Sean, that mare line is not heavy at all. You've never met the rest of them over here. Not a heavy line!

    Navarone (Jus de Pomme x Armstrong) has international jumpers winning Grand Prix. He also has eventers and dressage too. And his sire Jus de Pomme...say no more Atlanta Olympics! He is KWPN but approved in multiple registries and has lot of different blood in him including SF and AA. The foals get get KWPN papers too from your mare. Super characters and very good fresh.

    I'm glad to see Maren weigh in here.
    I also think that since the Trakehners are a breed, if you have a nice TK mare, its kind of a shame to go outside of the breed, if you can find something to suit your needs in it.

    Thanks Tracy and I do agree with your comment about the mare. The breed is already stretched out pretty thinly, losing mares like Xena would be a loss.

    Since the mare is competing, is this going to be an ET ?

    The problem with finding trak stallions w international jumpers is that there are few trak jumpers at that level and those that are seem to be eastern european/russian bred by those out of reach stallions (Telet 77 (??.) Other possibles not listed yet are stallions not avaliable here (heops, dur duer and his deceased sire?.) In addition, a 1.45 m horse there may have international points (showed in FEI classes) and the same horse here jumping 1.45 m-1.5 m has national points only.(SM has had two GP horses with national points as had Hailo for example)

    i really like hirtentanz myself. Coconut Grove is one that should hit soon w a GP horse and other competing thorughbred stallions in europe might fit. (favoritas sp? etc)including I think a SF xx that both Hol and trak verband approved (cant rememeber his name.)
    Here is my favorite class w Special Memories -a 1.6m world cup class that I only share for sentimental reason.

    The only Trakehners that have produced international jumpers are Abdullah, Horales, Waitaki and Almox Prints J (Suchard and Ballisto Z are not available with frozen). The mare is competing and so, yes, ET.

    Coconut Grove has not produced International offspring, neither has Hirtentanz, Special Memories or Titulus - yet.

    Whilst I hate to disagree with Maren (dare I? LOL) both Sayyida and her full brother, the approved Semper Fidelis, are substantial horses and Horales would not be my first choice until an idea of what they produce can be seen.
